Hi all, thanks for your suggestions.Jerlouvis, thanks for so many suggestions, and I agree with your lofty praise of the song. I think the song is so well crafted, and the good live versions ( esp. Jerry's solo ) always give me that 'spine tingling' feeling, that few others ever did, even to this day.

Thanks for starting an interesting thread.Making suggestions is the fun part.After all the back and forth is the backbone of this joint.For me the highlight of Stella was always the vocal and the wonderful,lilting melody of the song.A good solo was a bonus,I just always hoped Weir,Donna or Brent wouldn't ruin it.

This one as mentioned by jerlouvis gets my vote - Jerry's voice and guitar work are simply stunning - https://archive.org/details/gd1978-10-21.sbd.miller.89721.sbeok.flac16/gd78-10-21d1t01.flac
